XO/RepublicThe Weeknd has achieved a rare feat this week: he’s become the first solo male to top Billboard‘s Artist 100, Hot 100 singles chart and Billboard 200 album chart in the same week.

According to the publication, the singer’s “Can’t Feel My Face” occupies the top spot on the Hot 100 while his album Beauty Behind the Madness remains the number one album in the country. These achievements helped The Weeknd remain the top musical act for a sixth cumulative week based on the recently created Artist 100, which combines album and track sales, radio airplay, streaming and social media fan interaction.

“[B]lessed to be a part of history. couldn’t have done it without my fans, family and team. XO,” The Weeknd wrote on Instagram.

The only other entertainer to accomplish the feat so far is Taylor Swift, who held the top position on all three charts for seven weeks in December 2014-January 2015.
